Advice offered to Morocco property buyers
2012-04-27 02:00:00
The Moroccan property conveyance system is considered one of the safest in the whole of Africa and the Middle East. This is according to Nik Kapur, senior consultant at M2 Morocco, who was offering advice for people thinking of investing in Moroccan property. As well as a commendable conveyancing process, Mr Kapur also said mortgages are available to foreign buyers up to a maximum of 70 per cent loan-to-value. It is vital though, he added, to check that the land or property has a clear title before purchasing. In further advice, he stated: "Making sure that your purchase cash is routed to Morocco through official channels will save you a lot of hassle with repatriating your profits when you eventually sell your property." The recent Knight Frank Global House Price Index showed that property in Morocco increased in value by 2.9 per cent between 2010 and 2011.
Morocco 'a good choice' for property investment
2012-03-29 02:00:00
Buying real estate in Morocco is a good option for anyone who is keen to invest in property markets outside Europe. According to Nik Kapur, director of M2Morocco, the country is the most attractive destination for investors in north Africa, as it has not witnessed any political upheaval, unlike Egypt and Tunisia. He noted the nation is appealing because of its proximity to Europe and its economic strength. "The economy there is still showing year-on-year growth and the safe buying process also makes it a good destination for investment," Mr Kapur asserted. Properties at the bottom and middle end of the market are the most popular at present, while there is an oversupply of high-end assets, he added. The most recent Knight Frank Global House Price Index revealed the value of homes in Morocco increased by 2.9 per cent between the final quarter of 2011 and the same period a year earlier.

Strong euro drives Britons to Morocco
2008-06-02 02:00:00
British holidaymakers look set to shun traditional European destinations and head to Africa instead, analysts have predicted. According to the Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO), countries such as Morocco are likely to attract a greater number of people from the UK this year. This is because the single European currency has risen to a record high against the British pound and is likely to remain strong during the next few months. Therefore, prices in countries such as Spain and Portugal are comparatively expensive to Britons, whereas Morocco has more favourable exchange rates and lower prices. AITO chairman Derek Moore commented: "There will be an increasing number opting for countries on the edge of the eurozone like Morocco." He added that this is a good location because it is not far from Europe, which means travel times are not significantly different. This comes after said the tourism sector in Morocco is "on the up" and has...

GOODBYE MARRAKESH - NOVEMBER 2006No visit to Marrakesh would be complete without a tour of the Djemaa El Fna, a truly open-air theatre, the main square of Marrakesh, the largest in Morocco and allegedly the largest in Africa! Its fame is not due to its particular beauty, but to the incredible day and night life as well as to its atmosphere. Djemaa el Fna, whose name may mean either Assembly of the Dead or Place of the Vanished Mosque is famous for the large number of spectacles going on all the time and for the exquisite, tasteful and much appreciated food sold at night at the numerous food stalls. The place, a crossroads of Arab and Berber cultures, was closed to traffic in the early 2000s after having served as a bus station for some time!"ARGANA - Some believe that the Argana has the best combination of view and price.

He then created a botanical garden that displays plants from the five continents: cactus, yucas, water lilies, jasmines, bougainvilleas? and hosts more than 15 bird species, which can be found only in the area of North Africa.

[Note by Skin Patrol, 05/20/08 11:03 AM EDT ] Update per my amigo WCG at Windy City Gridiron. He has his own post up right now on the move, that probably deserves attention. Here's what he told me in an email: He worked for Bobby DePaul who is well thought of around here. The Bears scouting department, homer status aside, is one of the best in the league.  They get more from late round draft picks then a ton of of teams do with their 1st rounders.   I know the Bears did not want to lose him, I've seen a few blurbs talking about the Bears trying to up his money, but you can't keep a guy from a promotion and DePaul wasn't going anywhere. I can't recall if I told you this or not, but the Redskins released their pro personnel director Louis Riddick a couple weeks ago. Per the Insider his contract was up this summer, and the team did not intend to extend it, so bon voyage. This created a void in the football operations heirarchy that the team will apparently soon fi...

RED CITY - NOVEMBER 2006For many people when you speak of Morocco you mean Marrakesh, the second largest city in the country after Casablanca, and earlier known to travellers as Morocco City. Started to be built in 1070, in the plain near the Atlas Mountains, as a new capital for the Almoravid leader Abu-Bakr Ibn-Umar, it reached its apogee under the leadership of Yacoub el Mansour, the third Almohad sultan. Having been an imperial capital (like Fez, Meknes and Rabat), it's still nowadays a cultural crossroads, which has attracted many foreigners to the flourishing real estate market!

A few weeks ago, Algeria warned its Tunisian and Moroccan neighbors of a possible mega terror attack prepared by Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb. Interestingly the newsletter The Croissant (subscriptions available for a small fee) reported a few days ago that an Algerian, aboard a powerful 4X4, sped on the esplanade of the Mosque of Hassan II in Casablanca. He managed to overcome all obstacles limiting traffic, causing a real panic. The Moroccan security forces thought it was a suicide attack. This...(read more)

FROM THE PHOENICIANS TILL NOW - NOVEMBER 2006It seems that Rabat's history began in the third century BC with a settlement on the banks of the River Bou Regreg, known as Chellah. In 40 AD, Romans took over Chellah and converted it to the Roman settlement of Sala Colonia. Rome held the colony until 250 AD when they abandoned it to Berber rulers!***CHELLAH"CHELLAH GATE (Outside and inside) - The entrance to the complex, the most ancient human settlement on the mouth of the Bou Regreg River, probably inhabited by Phoenicians and Carthaginians.

RABAT - NOVEMBER 2006Rabat, located on the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the river Bou Regreg, is the capital of the Kingdom of Morocco. It is said to be the closest capital city to Lisbon, even closer than Madrid, which is only 650km far away! Probably due to its short distance, it took a bit for me to get there. It happened in Fall 2006..."HASSAN TOWER - The construction began to be built in 1195 AD, under sultan Yacoub al-Mansour, and was intended to be the largest minaret in the world to crown world's largest mosque. In 1199 al-Mansour died and the construction stopped; the tower reached only 44m from its intended 86m. The tower's design plan is said to have been modelled on the minaret of the Koutoubia Mosque in Marrakech, which was also the model for the Giralda tower in Seville.

Investors pointed towards cheap property in Morocco
2008-04-17 02:00:00
Overseas property investors could find possible bargains in Morocco, according to a British newspaper. The Telegraph highlighted the north African country as a possible option for foreign property buyers because it offers relatively low house prices. Property values were said to be much cheaper than those in other nations with a Mediterranean coastline. For example, it stated that a house in Spain could possibly cost three times as much as a similar property in Morocco. Prospective buyers were also told that the country is weathering the downturn in the global economy very well, as it is continuing to experience growth. The Telegraph remarked: "Moroccan property appears to be recession-proof as the housing market there booms." This comes after the Foreign Property Buyer website said that the government's plan to increase the number of visitors to Morocco over the next two years "bodes well" for its rental market.
Morocco offers strong rental market
2008-04-10 02:00:00
Foreign property investors who are seeking a lucrative buy-to-let investment could find Morocco a suitable location, according to industry said the tourism sector in the north African country is "on the up" and has witnessed some "impressive growth" in recent years.This was largely attributed to efforts by the government to boost the desirability of the nation to foreign leisure travellers.Authorities have recently pumped money into new buildings, leisure facilities and infrastructure upgrades in order to make Morocco more appealing to holidaymakers.However, this is also leading to additional interest among foreign property investors, many of whom believe the strong tourist trade is creating strong rental remarked: "Overseas property investors will not be short of reasons why Moroccan property is a smart buy and a sound addition to their real estate portfolios."This comes after the Foreign Property Buyer websi...

Is the "White" IQ So Superior?
2008-03-30 10:12:00
Updated March 31:I confess that I love to beat up White nationalists, or for that matter ethnic nationalists of any sort (this is why I verbally eviscerate Zionists - they are nothing but the Jewish equivalent of White Nationalists).There is nothing like nationalism, not to mention the super brain-killer of ethnic nationalism, to turn a smart person's brain to useless mush. The problem is that beating up on WN's is cruel. It's like slapping a retarded person and ridiculing them in public. So I feel kind of guilty when I do it.For a look at what a nightmare the White Nationalist movement is, and what a racist horror it represents, check out the sanest, most moderate outlier of the movement, American Renaissance. I hang out there a lot, and post lots of comments, when they do not get deleted, which is 75% of the time.I post mostly on illegal aliens, which is all I care about race-wise, as I am utterly indifferent to the "Black problem", anti-immigration xenophobia, Islamophobia, an...
Morocco plans infrastructure improvements
2008-03-27 01:00:00
Morocco's government is investing nearly 9 billion in improving its transport network, it has been revealed.Homes Overseas reports that authorities are keen to upgrade its transport infrastructure in order to boost Morocco's economy.More than 7 billion will be spent on improving ports, airports and roads, while 1.3 billion will go towards a planned high-speed rail service.The new train link will connect Tangier and Casablanca, offering direct passage between the two cities in just two hours.This is likely to significantly boost the property markets in both places, while towns along the route may also benefit from extra demand.Morocco's government hopes that as well as strengthening the economy, the improvements may also attract more foreign investors to the country.This comes after the Foreign Property Buyer website said that the government's plan to increase the number of visitors to Morocco over the next two years "bodes well" for its rental market.

Prince Of Persia Heads To MoroccoMike Newell sets shooting locationsSource: Variety The long mooted Prince of Persia film has finally set a start date and a location, even though no cast has yet been announced. Director Mike Newell and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are going to be shooting in Morocco and Pinewood Studios from mid-June.Based on the hit series of video games, expect this to feature lots of magic, sword-fighting and jumping around in Hammer pants - so a bit like Pirates of the Caribbean then (and sure enough, it's a Bruckheimer-Disney release that they're hoping to turn into a franchise).Newell, who's done big action before with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, will be directing a script by The Day After Tomorrow's Jeffrey Nachmanoff and game creator Jordan Mechner. That mid-June start date is dependant on the planned SAG strike not actually going ahead, and also on finding their cast by then. Let's keep fingers crossed th...
Morocco appeals to different types of buyers
2008-03-03 01:00:00
Morocco is appealing to a broad spectrum of overseas property buyers in the UK, according to experts.Independent analysts Amberlamb stated that the north African country is currently attracting an increased amount of interest from British-based investors.The organisation said Morocco is very popular with people who want a residence for their own personal use, such as holiday home owners and expatriates.However, it pointed out that the destination was also proving to be an appealing location for investment buyers as well.Amberlamb said the country now accounts for one in five properties in Africa that are owned by Britons.Commenting on its appeal, the group remarked: "This proves that the nation is of serious and increasing interest to UK-based purchasers."This comes after the Foreign Property Buyer website said that government plans to increase the number of visitors in Morocco over the next two years "bodes well" for its rental market.

Government moves to boost the economy in Morocco could make it more attractive to overseas property buyers, experts have suggested.According to Amberlamb, authorities are aiming to make the economy more resilient by making it less dependent on industries such as agriculture.The organisation said the government was embarking on a programme of economic diversification, which involves boosting other sectors including tourism.Amberlamb stated that these reforms could make the north African country an appealing destination to foreign property buyers.Commenting on the policy, the organisation said: "The underlying objective is to make Morocco more attractive and robust an environment for foreign direct investment."The country was described as an "incredibly exciting" market for investors to consider, as there is "massive potential" for it to develop and prosper during its long-term future.This comes after the Foreign Property Buyer website said that government plans to increase the number...

Euro, Sterling, Dollar or Dirham in Morocco?
2008-02-05 01:00:00
Global financial markets have seen a volatile start to 2008 amid fears of a looming global recession. Whilst much of the focus has been on equity markets, currency markets have also had a rocky start. Throughout the first half of 2007, Sterling was the darling of the market however, concerns of an economic slowdown in the UK coupled with expectations that the Bank of England will be forced to cut interest rates to stimulate demand have weighed heavily on the UK currency in recent months. But what has been the impact on Sterling against the Moroccan Dirham? Due to the fact that Europe is Morocco?s largest trading partner, Moroccan authorities manage their currency very closely to the Euro meaning volatility is kept to a minimum. Therefore, GBP/EUR and GBP/MAD follow very similar trading patterns (see chart below). So which is best to buy in?  HIFX foreign currency expert, Marc Cogliatti, explains: ?It probably makes sense for someone in the UK to be buying Euros as the GBP/EUR i...
